Illustrated with more than forty photographs as well as chilling original artwork, this selection of true-crime stories provides a fascinating introduction to the darker side of Nottingham’s past. The book documents a wide range of murderous misdeeds, from the infamous career of Charlie Peace – master criminal and virtuoso violinist – and the disasterous consequences of his affair with a Nottingham girl, to the exorcism of Thomas Darling and the lovers who eloped to join a band of highwaymen. It features cases of murder, sorcery, disease, cannibalism, suicide, pugilism, dismemberment, rioting, gun battles and gaol breaks many of them recorded in the archives of Nottingham’s Galleries of Justice. 96pp
